:00 a.m. eastern. chris, thanks again. >>> as president obama addresses north korea's third nuclear test at tonight's state of the union, he's also going to have an announcement on troops, our troops in afghanistan. just a short time ago, a source telling nbc news that president obama would announce more than 30,000 troops will be coming home soon. nbc's white house correspondent, kristen welker, joins me now. so kristen, what more details can we give on that? because there is a lot more now on the plate to discuss with north korea now in the mix. >> reporter: absolutely. well, in terms of afghanistan, tho thomas, i can tell you that president obama plans to specifically announce that 34,000 u.s. troops will be home within the year. this is significant for a couple of reasons. this is the first time that the president will give specifics about troop levels. it also represents that about half of the troops will be brought home. currently, there are about 66,000 troops in country. now, this comes after president obama met last month with afghan president hamid karzai. you'll remember

talked about economic fairness on this show. and thanks to the re-election of president obama, tax rates on the top 1% finally went back to the clinton rates of 39.6%. now senator bernie sanders of vermont is taking action to bring fairness to huge corporations not paying their fair share. this is what the election was about. the story always starts with the vulture chart, doesn't it? because it shows huge income inequality between wage earners in the top 1% over the past 30 years. there's a huge difference. income disparity won't be fixed overnight, but at least the top 1% are back to paying the clinton tax rate since president obama won the fiscal cliff fight. now, the other part of this is the corporations. the effective corporate tax rate has been declining for decades. about 25% of large corporations paid no federal income taxes in at least one of the last five years. is that fair? big question mark. the effective tax rate for corporations is low because of loopholes encouraging corporations to do what? keep their profits offshore. less tax revenue for huge corporations hurts

couldn't bring his party with him. see, i said something nice about karl rove. anyway. thanks, joy reid, have a nice weekend. you, too, david corn. >>> how deep is the debate over drones? critics on the progressive left, some of them, and libertarian right are taking issue with the obama administration drone policy. this is a family dispute in my house. polls show most americans support, even most liberals if you will, even when it means killing americans who are plotting with al qaeda to kill other americans. >>> plus, four senators, two democrats and two republicans, are really working on a deal to expand at least background checks for gun sales. two of the four senators are members of the nra. if they can strike a deal, then a big part of president obama's gun safety proposals could be within reach. >>> plus, the terrific movie "silver linings playbook" puts mental illness in the spotlight tonight. we're joined by the director of that film, the great david russell, to talk about the issue and the oscar history the movie could make. i think it's got a shot. >>> texas governor ric

. >> michael, thank you. >> this is so frightening. >> what it shows, democrats and liberals very critical and even called for extreme action to be taken against the bush administration, we're now obviously seeing some decisions the obama administration may argue differently. let me make clear, i support what the obama administration is doing here but it goes to show how difficult and messy, when the bush administration would make the point, those senior leaders would say it's difficult for perhaps some to understand what we're dealing with here when we talk about this level, all national security decisions are serious, we talk about this kind of threat we have to make at times very messy and sometimes uncomfortable and oftentimes questionable decisions. my only point is democrats need to now think back how they conducted themselves and questions they raised about bush administration tactics. i didn't raise those questions as aggressively as some of my friends did and important everybody step back and take a breather here, particularly democrats. if this was happening and his name
